Well the worst cities I have personally driven in are Naples, Mexico City, Jerusalem, and London. All much worse than LA which isn't even as bad as NYC. Can't speak for Mumbai, Cairo, or Manila though.

The worst I have actually driven is by far Firenze (Rome I avoided afterwards). Sao Paulo is also bad but not as Italian cities. ANY North American city is piece of cake for for most Europeans BTW

Asian and African cities are very bad as well but I didn't have to drive myself at least...

How could a city of over 10 million, with over 6 million registered cars driving around, have better traffic than Italian cities? Plus the road infrastructure is crap from what i heard.

Good, if you "heard" of it - I was actually driving there for a long time. It's hell as well and especially small neighbourhood roads are sometimes in bad conditions but they work hard on it recently. The big roads and motorways are okay.

You can ask anyone, Italians were are and always will be the most violent and chaotic drivers in the world, worse than French and Spanish (also the Ticinesi drive like that). It's not an offense, it's just their style - and it works out for them.

I was not there, only in Indonsia and Malaysia - and the first is also very bad. But I wouldn't say worse - similar, only that the Indonsians blow the horm even more often

Freeways in Caracas are a big parking lot:

DC needs to improve its commuting problem

From personal experience, one of the worst in terms of traffic the United States is definitely Washington DC, as the entire northern half of Virginia (also known as NoVa) and southern half of Maryland seems to be one big suburb. If the inner city of DC could be made more attractive to families and public transport were improved (for example connecting Dulles Airport with downtown), things might change.

London must be one of the easiest major cities to drive in the world (probably the most expensive in the centre too but thats for another thread). I don't see how anyone who has driven in many cities could think it be up their with the likes of Napoli, Mexico City and most African and Asian metropolises.

Metro Manila has a hell lot of work to do, also caused by overpopulation and causes too much environmental pollution in my opinion.

LA is the worst in the United States, if not the world. There are statistics that show LA consistently outranking other US cities.

Have you been outside of the United States? Ever DRIVEN outside of the United States? Los Angeles is very easy to drive in due to its wide, well-designed, well-signed road infrastructure. Try navigating around Manila for a day, and see what you think about Los Angeles.

LA is nowhere near the worst. Even Florence Italy was worse taking into account the small streets, lack of signs, mix of bikes, cars, people, it was a zoo. i cant imagine some of the Asian and Indian cities as well as Tehran and the like.

Driving in England can also be pretty bad. Commuting from Leeds back to Nottingham on the M1 is a right bastard sometimes especially when there is an accident. Traffic jams can be 5-10 miles long if the accident is bad enough.
It's also a very dangerous part of the motorway as about a 30 mile stretch of it isn't lit up at all.
This doesn't rank as bad as other places but its still bludy annoying.
im pretty sure wut u said bout india is not true
ok if it is then wed have to agree that most traffic is in the cities(rest is mostly truck)
ok then if its in the cities then the yrs i lived in mumbai which is 10+ id have to see at least a few ppl die
well i didnt and i drove around a lot

I guess the netherlands would score pretty good on the traffic jams list of the world, btw Im saying Netherlands because the west side of the Netherlands is comprised out of several cities next to eachother and the highways in between are one big traffic jam every day.

Actually, Dubai is literally the worst traffic in the world (in the Guness book of records!!!); much much worse than DC. I lived in both cities and Dubai is worse.
